At the mention of Hello Kitty, we are often whisked to our childhood, when we used to collect countless items with the iconic red-bowed feline’s face like there’s no tomorrow. And if you grew up loving the beloved Sanrio character as a child, there’s no reason to stop your kawaii obsession after becoming an adult. Luckily, Belgium bag brand Kipling has made it easier to incorporate the character into your wardrobe even if you’re way past your school-girl years.
Most renowned for their innovative use of crinkled nylon, Kipling presents a nostalgic Hello Kitty Capsule Collection that is bound to bring out some girlish giddiness. The collection introduces lightweight, multi-functional bag styles designed for a sweet and trendy aesthetic. Expect to see the bags feature iconic Hello Kitty elements – such as her eyes, whiskers, and, of course, her red bow – in the form of embossed silhouettes.
There’s the Charcoa series, a sleek black range made from soft-to-the-touch 100% recycled nylon. Its satin-like finish is an elevated showcase of Kipling’s timeless durable tech. The series also features the brand’s popular ART M design and two other cross-body styles. A notable feature: the three-dimensional front pocket includes an embossed pattern of Hello Kitty’s face, making for a practical, minimalistic piece perfect for any outfit.
Their Stripe collection presents a summery style with polyester accents amidst vivid blue and red stripes. A treat for the sharp-eyed ones, Hello Kitty’s face and bow pop in subtly between the lines, adding a finishing touch of youthful fun. Furthermore, its multicoloured interior lining is made of recycled materials – a nod to Kipling’s way of doing their part for the planet.
